3.55/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 12 oz bottle to IPA glass.
A - Dark brown with a slight reddish tinge. Some light penetrates. One finger pearl white head with a bit of lacing and some retention around the ring of the glass.
S - Coffee, chocolate, toffee, burnt malt. Smells very stout-ish (yep, just made that up).
T - Tastes like brown sugar beer to me. Really overpowering malt characteristic. Sugary and almost like maple syrup. Not horrible considering the style, but not my favorite. Still drinkable. Slightly bitter, but not overpowering. The finish leaves some toffee and bitterness lingering.
M - Average carbonation and very dry. Some astringency.
O - Not my favorite by any means, but not a bad go-to American strong ale that is easy to find.
